 We're super excited to introduce you to the latest innovation from beauty powerhouse Clinique – the new Super City Block BB Cushion Compact SPF 50, available exclusively to Fenwick stores from July 15th.

If you haven’t yet heard of the recent ‘cushion compact’ trend then you’re in for a treat. Made popular in countries like South Korea, where women are renowned for looking after their skin, the compact is essentially a BB or CC cream conveniently contained in a sponge to keep the liquid from spilling.

Pressing on the liquid with the applicator means you don’t have to faff about with tubes and bottles, which makes it ideal for on-the-go touch ups that can prove to be annoying and unhygienic. 

Clinique’s new foundation doesn’t just have convenience on its side; its high-tech formula provides an impressively high SPF 50 broad-spectrum protection with a cooling and hydrating texture that’s lightweight, yet buildable.

Available in four shades, the 100% fragrance-free liquid provides sweat and humidity resistance to control oil and shine that boasts up to eight hours of wear - making it perfect for balmy evenings on holiday and sticky summer days in the city.

Simply press the puff onto the cushion sponge to pick up the foundation and then pat and press onto the face, starting from the middle and working out. You can pat over a second layer to areas that need a little more coverage and reapply throughout the day if needed. 

The new Clinique Super City Block Cushion Compact SPF 50 is £30 and is available for a month-long UK exclusive at Fenwick stores nationwide from Friday 15th July.
